This week I've been experimenting a bit more with making the most of my Weightwatchers points.
Almonds & almond milk have now become a staple part of my day. Almonds are quite high in Weightwatchers points but I've been reading about the "good" fats in them. There yummy with some fruit & natural yogurt for breakfast.
I've also seen on a few blogs recently about cauliflower "rice". Now Weightwatcher folks among us this sounds fab - 0propoints. So I thought I'd give it a go.
I made a turkey tikka masala.
For the curry:
86g turkey breast
1/3 white onion
1/3 red pepper
30g cannelloni beans
1/3 tin chopped tomatoes
40g pataks tikka paste
I dry fried all of the ingredients (apart from the paste & tomatoes)in a saucepan. Once the turkey was cooked through I added the paste and tomatoes and allowed to cook through.
For the cauliflower rice:
Paprika - I added this for flavour but you could have it plain.
Whiz up the cauliflower in a food processor - I also read grating it with a cheese grater gets the same effect.
I sprayed a couple of sprays of frylight an added the cauliflower. And cooked for about 5 minutes.
I served it with a mini naan bread for the full Indian feel. For a total of 10 propoints.
And this was the finished product. Yummy.
I won't lie - its not exactly got the stodginess of rice and the first few mouthfuls were a bit daunting but I got used to it & it's a good substitute to rice, and one that I'll definatly be cooking again.
